FULL TIME - Adelaide 10.16 (76) Collingwood 7.13 (55)
A drama-filled night at Adelaide Oval ends with the Crows reviving their top eight hopes and dealing a blow to Collingwood's top four credentials.
The win will doubtlessly be overshadowed by the three-quarter time siren being inaudible due to crowd noise. Adelaide kicked a goal, which counted, well after the TV clock hit 0:00. There may also be a question over whether or not the timekeepers sounded the siren until the umpires heard and acknowledged it, a key finding of the 2006 "silent siren saga" between St Kilda and Fremantle at York Park.
Adelaide dominated after the mid-stages of the second quarter when Collingwood hit a lead of 15 points.
The Crows won tackles 92-70 and clearances 50-33.
Patrick Dangerfield collected 32 touches, Scott Thompson 31, and Josh Jenkins 15 to go with his five marks and four goals.
Scott Pendlebury won 33 touches for Collingwood and Dayne Beams 30.

Q4 - 4.00 - ADE 9.12 (66) COLL 7.8 (50)
Brodie Smith blazes away for a behind.
Perhaps only a Collingwood win will stop this siren issue being a controversy.
Crows win big = goal on siren was crucial momentum and scoreboard pressure.
Crows win narrow = goal decisive in the outcome.
The St Kilda-Fremantle "silent siren saga" established that full time is when the umpire hears the siren. But the obligation is also on the timekeepers to keep sounding the siren until the umpires acknowledged. It seems pretty clear that didn't happen here.
huge delay in that siren compared to channel 7s countdown clock #AFLCrowsPies — Alex (@av_alexvinar13) May 15, 2014

The umpires didn't know the siren had gone for quite some time as they were busy breaking up a melee.
